Port managers, local seafood processors and Pacific County residents aiming to keep local issues at the forefront of future policy and federal budget discussions met with congressional and senate staff at a round-table discussion at the Port of Ilwaco Aug. 24.

Staff from the offices of U.S. Rep.Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-WA, 3rd Dist., U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., and U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and U.S. Rep.Suzanne Bonamici, D-OR, 1st Dist., and U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., were present to answer questions and listen. They toured the area earlier that morning, getting a close-up look at the rehabilitation work ongoing at North Jetty in Cape Disappointment State Park and at dredge work at the entrance of the Baker Bay channel outside of the Port of Ilwaco’s marina.
